The Advaita Vedanta movement assumes that the human Soul (Atman) is one with the
all-encompassing Divine (Brahman).
In Sanskrit, the language of the Vedas and other sacred Indian writings, “Advaita” literally means not two-fold “or no duality.
De Gayatri mantra is an ancient mantra that invokes the Divine for happiness and enlightenment:
Ohm Bhur Buva Svaha
Tat Savitur Varenyam
Bhargo Devasia Dhimahi
Dyoyo Naha Prachodayat
Ohm in all worlds: terrestrial, astral, and celestial,
we meditate on the splendor of that Divine which illuminates us.
May all that golden light nourish our understanding
and guide us towards the sacred abode.
Meaning: The mantra gives a powerful purifying energy
and prays for peace, happiness and enlightenment
for all living beings.
